We recently had our TV serviced and they replaced the 3 color chips. Now our picture is far too dark. We can barely see faces in night time scenes. The repairman said it was the quality of the shows; however, the same shows and movies look great on our less expensive, non-HD TVs.
We have tried all of the adjustments an nothing helps. Please advise.

You can try adjusting the color output. There are two ways to do this: 1) In the service menu (I don't know the codes or parameters...) I will not cover this for lack of info.
2) Via the focus block (Very touchy and difficult to get the mix right again if you get too far off)
If you take off the front cover there should be a access panel. Behind that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it. This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are located)
It sounds more like you may need more red in the mix or just less blue and green. There is a screw for each color. Do not mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'
Barely turn the red up. Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it. Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.
Do not turn andy of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.
I have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.
Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!
It could be that the picture tubes have gone down on emission, there is a prcedure that can be tried to bring up the overall brightness but it is just possible that you will loose some picture quality. If it's a 1994 projo tv i am thinking of the three crt system, a gray scale alignment would probably correct the dark condition in your picture, again depending on how far gone is the emission in your picture tubes, if your projo tv is the dlp system, the bad news is that you could be needing some light engine repair. The color adjustment is possible with the availability of a service manual or in the case of the dlp system, light engine repairs or replacement are available from some on line stores.
Sounds like the TV has lost the VIDEO and only has color. Make sure all the cables are secure and good. 2) Reset the TV by unplugging the TV or any BOX you have attached to TV. Unplug both from a/c for 3-5 minutes, plug back in and turn both on.
If no fix. Go to service Company that is Authorized and get an estimate, possible cost $450.00 +. Too many areas of concern to help you with particulars.
The colors seperating is a convergence problem, as far as being dim this may be related but the TV likely needs service adjustments. convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks! See link for more detail http://www.ehow.com/how_4575598_yourself-projection-tv-repair-convergence.html
Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.
